True...
I don't have a problem putting him on the wing with DB and Gio. He will take care of the lion's share of puck pursuit anyways. He will still take the important draws in his own end.
So essentially where you line him up to start the game is meaningless.
The only drawback is with regards to D zone coverage if they happen to get their wires get crossed.
i like the idea of Eller being able to pressure pinching D but then you have to trust that Danny is taking care of the down low play.
